Political Culture and Public Opinion

What Is Political Culture?

Different nations have different languages, faiths, ethnicities, traditions, histories, and worldviews. As a result, the government created by each nation is distinct and unique. Countries may create similar governments—there are many democracies in the world, for example—but no two political systems are exactly identical. Moreover, the ways people interact with their government differ from country to country as well, so no two political cultures are truly similar, nor is public opinion the same from country to country.
